Tens of thousands of people are expected to pour into the Bay this Anniversary Weekend

Petrol-heads and adrenalin junkies will be in heaven with the ENZED 2106 UIM Jetsprint World Championship Finals at Baypark Stadium and the Eastern Region Surf Life Saving Championships at the Main Mount Beach.

As well as several major events to choose from, there is even something for fur babies with Bark in the Park. Add to that the opportunity to chill at Soak’n Sunday Sounds at the hot pools or watch a live Shakespeare performance or outdoor movie, there really is plenty for everyone.
ENZED 2016 UIM Jetsprint World Championships Final organiser Erik Hoeksema said the internationally recognised event had attracted a crowd of about 18,000 last year, and he expected similar numbers this year.”The competition is going to be savage.
